Notes

It is not certain that Ladysknowe refers to the BVM, but if it does it is likely to have been because income from the land was used to support her cult in the parish kirk. And a charter of 1497 does indeed refer to an altar of St Mary in Largo kirk, making a grant of 5 merks annually for service 'ad altare Beate Virginis Marie' in the kirk (RMS ii no. 2342).
